A Year Ago...

A year ago today, we got the call. It was a moment in an ordinary day that changed everything!
It was of course a call we had been preparing for. And we expected it would most definitely change things. But, we had NO IDEA to what extent!

God has truly taught us so much about who we are, how He loves and what it means to follow His will over our own. It's really hard some days, but it's also really beautiful.

As for the waiting....well, that continues. Seems we still have lots to learn in this area. :)

I think the hardest part for me is often not knowing how to pray or even if it is safe to hope. But I do trust. I trust that He sees the bigger picture and has purpose well beyond my understanding. I will wait. And I pray I will do so well and in a way that brings Him glory...truth is, some days my feelings and frustration get the best of me...just ask my sweet husband and the dear friend whose ear has heard it all!

Bottom line though, God is faithful and He has allowed us a great privilege to play a part in His plan and be blessed by a home full of children and laughter and toys and tears and joy and love, while we do so...TOGETHER.

Peacefully Reliant on Him,
